When you're a parent, "Netflix and chill" means your kid watches some PAW Patrol while you finally sit down for a second and relax. Excessive screen time obviously isn't ideal, but a bit of Netflix here and there won't hurt. If the kids are getting bored of what's already available, check out what's new for kids on Netflix Canada for February.
Note: Age recommendations are approximate. Every kid is different—you're the best judge of what's appropriate and what your kid can handle.
